Tips from locals
John’s is another local and tourist hot spot in Kitty Hawk! Grab your a fried dolphin boat and one of their AMAZING milkshakes! Warning: parking can be tricky because they are always busy when they are open.
Best dolphin (mahi mahi) sandwich and milk shake on the beach! The pineapple banana shake is delicious!!!
This is our favorite hole in the wall food joint. It’s a perfect place to go grab lunch and bring it back to the beach. Make sure you call ahead and place your order as the wait times can be a little lengthy, but it’s so worth it!
LOCALS FAVORITE Classic drive-in shack (open May-October) specializing in thick milkshakes & fried fish sandwiches.

“Art's Place is just a mile north of Beach Haven! Walk, bike or drive down our lazy back street to reach my fav local breakfast spot, or grab a burger for lunch or late night! No matter what you decide to get for breakfast, grab a 1/2 order of French Toast to try (it's not on the menu-the 1/2 order, but it's just the right amount to taste!)”
